Volcan de Mi Tierra has added a Reposado Tequila to their range. The new premium offering is the latest addition to the Moët Hennessey-owned brand‘s prestigious collection of premium, hand-crafted Tequilas. Created in collaboration with Jalisco’s iconic Gallardo family, the new expression from Volcán looks to marry tradition with innovation and deliver a seamless union of agave, terroir and wood.
Volcan Reposado is made from 100% blue agave from the Jaliscan highlands, delivering a soft yet rich flavor that is free of additives. Each bottle consists of liquid that rests for 135 days in new casks made of American and European oak. This allows for an interaction between the liquid and the wood and ultimately results in a release of toasted tobacco notes alongside those of pineapple, light citrus and honey, creating a smooth and balanced finish.
“Over the last three years we have poured the utmost heart and passion into building the Volcán De Mi Tierra brand. Each day we are proud to share a beautiful collection of super premium tequilas that celebrate the unique culture, provenance and terroir of Jalisco,” said Trent Fraser, Managing Director of Volcán. He added, “Today, after dozens of trials and thoughtful experimentation, Volcán De Mi Tierra and the Gallardo family write a new chapter in our story with the introduction of Volcán Reposado. Like our Blanco and Cristalino expressions, Volcán Reposado embodies 100% Heart across each and every one of the meticulous steps of the Volcán journey.”
Launched in 2017, Volcan De Mi Tierra’s true beginnings date back over 200,000 years when Tequila Volcano erupted, covering the area in volcanic soil and fertilizing the land for prime agriculture. Volcan De Mi Tierra, which translates into ‘land of the volcano,’ is a celebration of provenance and legacy. The brand’s own distillery sits in the lowlands at the base of the volcano.
Volcan Reposado is priced at $55 and can be found at restaurants, bars, and fine retailers in select states.
